1966 2002

After leaving pusser's in 1973, I lived in Queenbeyan with Elke, my future wife, who at that time was based at HMAS Harman.  She was then WRAN Steward Elke Muller.

I have had several jobs, eg. garbologist, Royal Australian mint etc.  We moved to Port Augusta, Elke's home town. We married in 1974 and have two fantastic children, Michael 29 who now lives and works in Melbourne.  Joanne and her fella live in Stoneville just outside of Perth.  She has presented us with a beautiful grand daughter Makalah-Page in November 2003.

I have worked at Port Augusta power station for 30 years.  Elke and I live in Quorn, a lovely little town nestled in the Flinders Ranges, it is half an hour to and from work.

Looking forward to seeing you all in 2006.
